Endometriosis Services in Westchester Illinois

Pain Management

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand that endometriosis can bring about chronic and debilitating pain. Our team of dedicated professionals work tirelessly to deliver highly individualized plans for pain management. We aim not just to alleviate your symptoms but also enhance your overall quality of life. Our diverse range of strategies may include prescription medication, physical therapy or even alternative methods like acupuncture depending on your unique situation and needs.

Hormonal Therapies

The hormone imbalances triggered by endometriosis often require specialized intervention. At our clinic, hormonal therapies play a pivotal role in mitigating the effects of the disease while preserving your feminine wellness. Experts at Womens Health Group Chicago are finely attuned to each patient’s specific requirements; be it oral contraceptives, progesterone therapy or GnRH agonists – we ensure all medications align perfectly with your dynamic health journey.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

When conservative approaches don’t achieve adequate symptom relief, our talented surgeons step in armed with advanced minimally invasive surgical procedures designed specifically around individual patient profiles. Our mission is to help you regain control over your body without subjecting you to undue risk or prolonged recovery timeframes. Trust us to tackle both: diagnosis and treatment via laparoscopic excision surgery or laparoscopy with robotic assistance when required.

Fertility Preservation And Treatment

In some women, endometriosis may affect fertility leading to more complex challenges hence at Women’s Health Group Chicago we place an elevated focus on offering personalized fertility preservation and treatment plans. Balancing innovative medical technology with compassionate care ensures higher chances of success whether you’re aiming immediate conception or planning for future pregnancies through cryopreservation tactics such as freezing eggs or embryos.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic floor therapy represents another critical component of our endometriosis care portfolio. By focusing on the muscles, ligaments and tissues supporting your pelvic organs, we can help alleviate often-overlooked ramifications like discomfort during intercourse or urinary problems. Our professional therapists deploy a wide spectrum of individualized programs that are aimed to improve both functional aspects and symptoms related specifically to endometriosis.

Nutritional Counseling

The impact of nutrition on managing endometriosis is undeniably significant which makes nutritional counseling an integral part in our multi-faceted care delivery model at Women’s Health Group Chicago. Our certified dietitians work closely with patients not only to design personalized meal plans but also in educating about how food choices may influence their health positively thereby backing you up in this challenging journey against Endometriosis every step of the way.

Dr.Mike is amazing. He listens, has solutions and follows through. I travel over an hour to see him and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

I've been coming to Dr. Awad and Dr. Mike for over 30 years. Never had a bad experience and actually look forward to chatting with them both. I was a little sad and nervous when I was told Dr. Mike was unavailable today (delivering babies!) so I saw Dr. Lexi. I should have known Dr. Mike would only hire the best to work with him. Dr. Lexi was kind and knowledgeable. She asked all the right questions and was very gentle. Great staff as well.
